My goal of getting my SBB certification was to be able to work in an immunohematology reference lab. I had made several attempts for a technologist position at a reference lab over the years and was not successful. Soon after I graduated from the SBB program at Rush University, Illinois, my recruiter from K.A. Recruiting contacted me and presented me with several job opportunities and suggestions. I had a great opportunity to connect with an immunohematology reference laboratory director and to be considered for the immunohematology reference specialist position. My recruiter was very supportive, knowledgeable and patient. Not only did she help me fulfill my dream, but she also made sure that I was well compensated.
